Discovery (Post#21) : Qingshui (or Chingshui) Temple

Also known as Tsushih Temple or the “Divine Progenitors Temple” is a temple in dedicated to the god Qingshui Zushi, a Northern Song Dynasty Buddhist monk who is said to have saved a town from a drought. The temple is located in the Wanhua District of Taipei City, Taiwan. The temple is often called “the most characteristic example of mid-Qing temple architecture.” The temple was constructed in 1787. In 1958, the temple was renovated and restored.

I found the temple while walking away from the shopping streets of Ximen as I was looking for historical sites using the map that was given to me from the accommodation that I was staying at that time. These photos are part of Taiwan Experimental Travel Adventure Photo Collection January 2017.

    1. I agree with you. I am in the process of learning and appreciating Taiwan history and culture as I traveled the country. Though my first visit was an experiment and just a short one, I plan to visit it again soon to have longer travel adventure. Thanks for your comment.
